Overview
Formerly a rural community on the outskirts of Boston, Lynnfield is now a modern suburb connected to the hub by the bustling Routes 1 and 128. Where there were once shoe factories and ice-harvesting facilities, there are now distribution facilities and automobile dealerships. Like so many other towns across New England, Lynnfield has entered the modern age and left little trace of its smalltown past.It is hard to imagine that the town once accommodatedstagecoach passengers in a grand hotel and entertained locals in a stunning ballroom, but local historian and photographer Warren H. Falls brings us back to this time with the pictures and the stories in Lynnfield. With images from his own collection and others loaned by the Lynnfield Historical Society and many town families, Mr. Falls has created a marvelous visual portrait of Lynnfield's bucolic heritage. Readers will delight in watching Lynnfield develop from the late 1600s to the present day.
